      Hi Ron



      Yes, you are of course correct about the longer ending of MK (SQE section
      353) but at this juncture what I am wrestling with is why I can’t generate
      accurate numbers when sub-totaling word counts by pericope. Clearly there is
      something awry on MY end of this but I will get to the bottom of it if for
      no other reason than that David Inglis asked a question to which there
      should be an «easy» answer.

      Rick et al.,

      It might be worth noting that the figure here for Mark includes both the
      longer and shorter endings, whose originality is denied even by the modern
      text's editors.

      Mark 1:1 to 16:8 in NA27/UBS3 has 11099 Greek words.
